Evert van Muyden (aka Évert Louis van Muyden) (1853–1922)

“Combat de Tigres”, c1912, printed by Louis Fort (fl. early 1900s) and published in Paris by Gauthier-Villars in the periodical, “Revue de l'Art Ancien et Moderne”, vol. 31, May, 1912, as an inserted original etching facing page 366 (see this print in its context in the publication:

Etching with drypoint printed in a dark brown ink on cream wove paper backed with a support sheet providing wide margins

Size: (support sheet) 38.2 x 41.3 cm; (sheet) 22.2 x 26.2 cm; (plate) 18 x 23.6 cm; (image borderline) 17.3 x 3 cm.

Inscribed in plate: (lower left) “E. VAN MUYDEN”.

Condition: a richly inked and well-printed (near faultless) impression laid onto a sheet of archival (millennium quality) washi paper. The sheet is in a near pristine condition with no tears, holes, folds, abrasions, losses, stains, foxing or signs of handling.

I am selling this visually arresting etching executed with great vitality, for the total cost of AU$247 (currently US$168.89/EUR158.77/GBP141.44 at the time of posting this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.

If you are interested in purchasing this amazing etching where every feature in the background adds to the tension of the tigers fighting—note, for example, how the bamboo thicket on the right provides the suggestion of resistance to the thrust of the sloping ground and the angle of the leaning trees on the left—please contact me ( and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
